Log a Call button

I want to add a second "Log a Call "button to the Account/Contact/Oppty pages that will have a different default subject than the out of the box "Call".
I want the button to read "Log a Demo" and the default subject value to be "Demo".
Can this be done?

Thanks, kb

You can create a Custom Button on Account/Opportunity/Contact and define the button as a URL as below.


Please see screenshot. The only different is that the button will be on Account Detail instead of Activity History Related List

I added teh button per your instructions....but the button wasn't available to add to the activity related list...
You cannot add to activity related list. You need to add it to account contact and opportunity separately

Only at the top of the screen in the custom button area?

Thanks for your help...I appreciate it.

If you want the custom Log A Call button on the Activities related list, create the button under the Task (or Event) object.  Then you can add this button in the Activities related list section.
